I have an embedded client which we plan to run on a NetBSD kernel. It is 
multithreaded and it is critical some threads run at a higher priority 
than others.

I tried to use pthread_setschedparam() to change the thread priority, 
but this doesn't work. I've looked at the source code and it appears 
NetBSD doesn't seem to support changing thread priorities. Are there any 
plans to add this support in the (very) near future?
